Spine Care

Most patients that are seen by a spine surgeon are better treated with nonoperative options rather than with spine surgery. These options include activity modification, physical therapy, anti-inflammatory medications and interventional pain procedures, such as epidural and facet injections.

Patients who are considered for surgical intervention typically have symptoms that persist after nonoperative management and have findings of significant spinal stenosis (narrowing of the space around the spinal cord and nerve roots) or other problems on their magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans or other imaging studies. For many, the symptoms interfere with work, family and their ability to be productive and active.

For the right patients with particular findings on their MRI studies, minimally invasive options allow spine surgeons to take care of the problem and get patients back to their activities more rapidly than with conventional surgical procedures.
